From the publisher's desk: A celebration for “Bump”

For nearly a year we searched for the perfect home in Del Norte County and ended up buying “Casa Progressa,” as Rick likes to call it. It’s the four-bedroom fixer-upper that’s our over-sized work in progress.

We preferred a smaller home. The three rambling guest rooms rarely get used. But last weekend I was grateful we could comfortably accommodate all my children and their significant others when they came to visit.

My father had immigrated to the United States and was a widower with two children when he married my mom.  Did he write a letter home — a letter that would take about two weeks to arrive — on the lined tablet he used with his Schaeffer fountain pen to announce that he and my mother were expecting?
